Impacting individuals, influencing systems
What We Do
SW!TCH draws on LifeLine’s 15 years’ experience of working with young people through our award-winning VIP Mentoring scheme. Today’s SW!TCH programmes bring solutions to young people that are in danger of becoming involved in serious youth violence or have poor mental health.
Located in Elm Park and Ilford, our nurseries and pre-schools provide a warm and stimulating environment, with fun and engaging activities that help children to learn and grow.And with our innovative Tapestry app, you can see photos and updates about your child’s activities each day.
Part of the national Healthwatch network, Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham acts as a champion for people in their local community who use health and care services. Their role is to listen to what people have to say about their local services, and share this feedback with the providers of services so they can improve and better meet the needs of the community.
Who We Are
LifeLine Projects was founded in 2000 by a group of volunteers in East London who saw a need in their local community. Realising that they could be part of the solution, they began working with isolated and marginalised women. Since then, we’ve grown from a small organisation with just two part-time members of staff, to one of the larger community-based social enterprises in the capital. Over the years, we’ve worked with numerous organisations to deliver many public-sector-funded programmes, and we’ve received several awards recognising the fruits of our programmes and been short-listed for many more.
This month, we’d like to introduce Royston, an incredibly dedicated Youth Development Worker within our SW!TCH team and one of our Parent Champion Co-ordinators. Royston has a wealth of experience and melds his two disciplines with infinite precision. We hope

Richard was the definition of a natural leader, someone that people easily follow. He was inspiring for his actions, his bravery, his sacrifice, and his interest in other people. I knew Richard not only cared for me, but also that he had a vision for me. He believed in me from an early age, but he was very subtle in encouraging me to help other people help themselves. He was especially useful in the youth work in which I was involved. He gave his life to young people and he inspired me to greatness. He demonstrated behaviours that I still consciously seek to replicate today.
